Review: I think I already said everything in my mini recaps. Overall, this could have been way better had the writer not do the second amnesia and make Sara go borderline psychotic. Likewise I wish we had more good scenes between Young Guk and Dandan. All they did was cry for half of the show.
Final stretch.. I loved these 6 episodes because the truths keep coming out! Anna being Dandan’s birth mother, Sara’s lies. Young Guk finally stopping the whole craziness (though he is still so indecisive when it comes to his relationship with Dandan).
More than halfway through and this weekend drama keeps going downhill, which is really unfortunate because this started so well, like a fun and light family drama. I don’t know if the writer got drunk and changed the story from nice though flawed characters to psycho selfish people.
I’m still rooting for Young Guk and Dandan’s happy ever after. Even though Young Guk is also to blame sometimes for the heartache, I know he just wants Dandan and the people around him happy. But please let your Chairman personality finally show up because I’m so tired of bitchy Sara, the raging stepmom, Dandan’s selfish parents plus money hungry stepmom.
The kids continue to be the happy pill in this drama. I just want the kids to be happy and see more family activities like this. But can they let Jaeni in on the happiness, because she is being kept in the dark for so long.
Anna Kim and Dandan’s dad are the worst people in this drama. Esp Dandan’s dad who has no shame. yes, Young Guk is older and has 3 kids, I get that, but like Yeonshil said, it’s not like he’s a criminal. He still looks young for his age, respectful and a sweet husband and father. I’m sure Young Guk will support Dandan in whatever career or decision she makes.
I’m not even bothered with the rest of the stories. Even Daebeom and Seryeon’s story is boring. Poor Uncle Geon is too smitten with Sara to see how awful she is. Yeonshil pulling Anna Kim’s hair is funny but Yeonshil is also terrible parent.
I’m way behind because it’s difficult to motivate myself to continue watching, but I will see through the end because I already spent months (since 2021!) watching the drama.
And because i can’t wait for this drama to be OVER and catch the drama that will replace this, which will stars Yoon Si Yoon!!! 🙂
I’m not very happy with how the show is progressing. Young Guk’s memory came back but erased all his memory from the last 3 months which was bad! Sara gets another free pass, Dandan has to wait again for Young Guk (and she’s still not slapping Sara), and Dae Ran is still lazy a** stepmom.
Young Guk also continues to be hot and cold towards Dandan, which is getting annoying. C’mon, make up your mind! If you can’t even decide to love a girl, I don’t know how he is able to run a big group!!! One minute, he pushes Dandan away and hurting her feelings. The next minute he rushes to her side when she is sad or crying. I think if Dandan was in her 30s or 40s, she wouldn’t take this crap from a boyfriend!!! But since she is young and naive, she just keeps accepting the punches thrown at her, believing that love heals all wounds. or love conquers all.
The only highlight in these 10 episodes are Sechan and Sejong! I’m so glad the kids found out about YG and DD and they are supportive of their relationship, esp. if it means getting rid of psycho Sara as their step mom. I honestly don’t believe that Sara loves Young Guk or even her son, with the way she is behaving. I feel like she thinks she deserves the money and the rich lifestyle, just because her son is living in the household and she’s bee “taking care” of the household for years! So deluded!
And the worst part?? Even with her lying and scheming ways, Uncle Geon is right beside her and she got a nice, solid, handsome boyfriend while YG and Dandan are still stuck with their non relationship relationship. Ugh!! Life is so unfair, really! The evil ones get their wishes, the nice ones get nothing. That’s both a sad reality and a lesson for nice people.
As for the other characters/couples, same thing. Daebum and Seryeon just have the same problem since episode 1. I think they should just give up for now and go on with their own separate lives. It’s really hard when families are involved.
Another disaster is Soochul and Anna. Soochul was one of the few that i liked in the show, and he turned out to be the worst one!!! I hate Yeonshil, but having an “affair” with Anna wasn’t a good idea. He finally founds out who Anna is and almost killed her! OMG!! Anna should just fly back to US and get away from her crazy family.
